Bredel, Peter M., Buffalo, was born in Pittsburg, Pa., July 23, 1859, of German parentage. In 1862 his parents removed to La Crosse, Wis. The foundation of his education was laid at the district schools and La Crosse (Wis.) Academy. In 1882 he removed to Aberdeen, S. D., which town was then the western terminus of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway system on the plains of the Dakotas. In the spring of 1884 the said railroad company extended its lines to Ipswich, to which place he removed and formed a partnership with A. D. Tollefson, an atforney, which partnership continued for a period of two years. He was admitted to the bar at Ipswich, S. D., December 1, 1888. He also had extensive farm interests at Theodore, S. D., where he had his farm operated up to 1896. Not desiring to continue the practice of his profession, he returned east in 1894 and settled in Buffalo, where he became engaged in the life insurance business, acting as manager of Western New York for the Fidelity Mutual Life Association of Philadelphia. He remained with said association until he resigned May 14, 1896, about which time he took charge of a like position with the American Union Life Insurance Company of New York, which position he still holds.
